Brandon, Do I sense a smattering of class envy in your blog? When all those despised high muckety-mucks leave Michigan to all the Joe Six-Packs and take their hated dollars and their affluent lifestyles to Naples, FL or Hilton Head, SC, don't be shocked when you you see a further decline in the incomes and lifestyles of the blue-collar and middle classes in Michigan. It might be good for you to remember that no construction company specializing in high-end houses, nor any mechanics working on luxury cars, nor any yacht builders, nor any upscale restaurants, clubs,or spas ever did any business with the poor or downtrodden. But those businesses did supply employment for thousand of those Joe Six-Packs.

Not only that, Alex, but this character seems to be another spirit-of-the-age guttersnipe who won't be happy until everything is dumbed down to the level of MTV.

Oh, and, Brandon, just so you know, rap isn't exactly one of the fruits of higher culture. And, no, I don't think you're cool.

There are some regions in the country where private clubs make sense because tee times are hard to get at public access courses and fees are outrageous. These are generally major metro areas like Chicago, NY, SoCal, and southern New England. Then there are places like Michigan, where there are more public courses than any other state in the nation. With that sort of access and affordabilty, who needs a private club, unless you just want to feel coddled and insulated?

Somehow I can't picture the boyz in the hood sweating out a game of b-ball on the sun baked pavement accepting that hitting the rim is good enought to count as a basket. They count it the same way as they do in the NBA. It goes thru the hoop.

Although I see this sort of thing every day on the golf course. Roll the ball here, miss a stroke there, foot wedge, gimme, mulligan sandbaggers etc..
I think you have it backwards it won't be the upity-ups giving up their life-style to let us in, it will be the fact that we have no place to play as public courses begin closing due falling revenues or run down course conditions because of those of us who don't appreciate that the rules, regulations and etiquette are the game of golf. So keep swilling beer, driving carts on greens and tee decks and keep playing the game of "goof" (as I call it) while forever seeking out the cheapest places to play. Soon their won't be many of those courses left and those of us who like playing quality courses where there is a dress code, manners and etiquette will appreciate you observing the game from the otherside of the rod-iron gates.
